Egyptian Theatre information
Lonely Planet review
The Egyptian, the first of the grand movie palaces on Hollywood Blvd, premiered Robin Hood in 1922. The theater’s lavish getup – complete with hieroglyphs and sphinx heads – dovetailed nicely with the craze for all things Egyptian sparked by the discoveries of archaeologist Howard Carter.
In its heyday, it had live caged monkeys and usherettes dressed like Cleopatra. These days it's a shrine to serious cinema thanks to the nonprofit American Cinematheque.
